We had a fabulous Roald Dahl day in Year 3. The children delighted us all in their character costumes which showed their creativity and flair! We especially liked the props that the children had made at home – thank you!
The day kicked off with celebratory photographs in the Hall followed by a lesson by Mrs McMillin, sharing with us interesting facts about the life of Roald Dahl. After that, Roald Dahl’s Enormous Crocodile helped us learn about greater than and less than signs during our Mathematics lesson. Children enjoyed playing ‘Highest number wins!’
In the afternoon, we got creative! We listened to extracts from the BFG about his dream catching and some children chose to make a dream catcher. Others have started to make Fantastic Mr Fox, very cleverly using a paper plate.
Later on we enjoyed listening to the Bruce Bogtrotter chapter (from Matilda) where he is forced to consume an entire chocolate cake! Thank you to Year 3 for acting this out.
Roald Dahl’s stories were brought to life during this afternoon and we could feel the magic of his stories. At the end of the day all we could think about was chocolate cake and we got to take a slab of cake home. Happy birthday Roald Dahl! We had great fun celebrating.
